Any idea if K6TU is planning to add audio capability to his app? Or anyone else planning another app?

Hopefully, 1.4 will expand on even better connectivity for mobile devices on a LAN. From the replies here, it seems the majority of Flex owners don't (or won't) believe their 6K series Flex will work over a LAN today, including DAX audio routing when SSDR is loaded on a *Windows O/S device* like a Dell Venue Pro tablet PC. When the Flex 6K and a PC are each connected to a network router, it already *is* a LAN based system. True, CW with paddles doesn't work yet, but I don't believe that's yet implemented in the forthcoming v1.4. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Another point that's being missed regarding v1.4: It's likely that LAN operation is being improved not just for LAN operation, but to implement a portion of the code needed for v2.0 WAN. I have to believe that much parallel coding is happening right now. IOW, I can't imagine that Flex is optimizing LAN coding without also a getting a major head start on 2.0. What they may really be working on is the 2.0 piece and not so much the 1.4 piece, if that makes any sense? So, it could be that much of 2.0 is in 1.4. To me, that's the only reasonable explanation for the time being taken on 1.4 since a good deal of LAN is already a part of 1.38.
Yeah, this is cool stuff. Better than reverse auto patch!

My hope is that someday I will be able to purchase a single APP, load it onto my iPad, and then be able to fully operate my 6300 remotely on my LAN with the iPad. As far as I can tell, at least at this point, V1.4 gets me half way there, when it arrives.
I guess that I can only hope that some very smart and knowledgeable folks (Much more so than me!) are working on an APP like that for iPad (and all types of tablets for that matter) that and will reach that goal eventually. The promise of this capability is one of the major reasons that I bought a Flex 6000 series in the first place. :)
Thanks again for all the info and comments.
